Annie Maunder Medal
The Annie Maunder Medal is awarded by the Royal Astronomical Society Awarded for an outstanding contribution to outreach and public engagement for astronomy or geophysics. This award is normally presented at the next National Astronomy Meeting, or if this is not possible, at one of the Society’s A&G meetings.
The Medal is open to all involved in outreach or public engagement for astronomy and geophysics, as well as those whose main occupation is outreach or public engagement, and open to nominees from anywhere in the world. Shortlisted candidates may be asked to provide additional information.
Annie Scott Dill Maunder (1868-1947) was one of the first women to be made a Fellow of the RAS.
The Medal is being launched in 2016, as part of the Society's celebration of the centenary of the admission of women to Fellowship.
